Prologis Responds to Market Demand with Two New Buildings at Park Bratislava
- Building 14 is 70-percent pre-leased as customers push to secure the best real estate in key logistics locations
- Building 14 is also the first Prologis CEE building with rooftop solar
Prologis, Inc., the global leader in logistics real estate, today announced that it has completed construction of two new speculative facilities totaling 25,300 square meters at the in-demand Prologis Park Bratislava.
The developments include:
- 9,800 square meters in Building 14, of which 2,700 square meters are pre-leased to Electronic Star, an e-commerce retailer, and 2,900 square meters to Blitshtein Trading, a food distributor serving major CEE markets.
- 15,500 square meters in Building 20.
The new facilities offer customers sustainable and above-standard features. Building 14 is the first Prologis facility in CEE to feature solar panels on a portion of the roof. The solar array is part of the company’s global ESG initiatives that, to date, have brought Prologis’ solar capacity across its worldwide portfolio to 175 megawatts. Building 20 is the first 12-meter high building at the park. Both facilities offer now-standard LED lighting, which is installed at 74 percent of the park’s premises at the park, and a smart metering system backed by Prologis’ superior 24/7 customer service.
With the completion of the two new buildings, the park offers more than 386,000 square metres of logistics space along with 58,000 square metres of additional development potential.
“Prologis monitors the market closely, and with rents rising in tandem with high demand, these speculative facilities bring sought-after state-of-the-art logistics space to choice locations like Prologis Park Bratislava, our largest park in the CEE region. Further, the advantageous location of the park makes it an ideal distribution hub for both domestic and international logistics services,” says Martin Stratov, director, development and leasing, Prologis Slovakia.
Prologis Park Bratislava is 24 kilometers east of Bratislava’s city center, 2 kilometers from Senec and 16 kilometers from the international airport.
With its active engagement in four CEE countries and a portfolio totaling 4.5 million square meters, Prologis is the leading provider of distribution facilities in Central and Eastern Europe (as of September 30, 2018).
